commercial district in which only 1000 square feet are being used for commercial space. this project feels more in line with a residential development than a neighborhood commercial development in the fact that less than 10% of the space is being used for commercial space and the rest is being used for essential space. the analogy that came to my mind is that had houses are not considered part of an existing building, and yet, they are allowed to take up 10% of a rough area. here you have a neighborhood commercial development, in which commercial space is less than 10%. the highest and best use for this project we feel would be that the total ground-floor be used for commercial space and other spaces be used accordingly. but in regards to revenue, we look at this project and whether it would be better for the city to generate revenue in its current state or in its proposed state, and we found that the parking tax staying at 25% of gross revenue, the its current state generates 5% more revenue than is proposed -- and its proposed project, and also the fact that the proposed pr

as a matter of right, including entertainment news, residential use, etc. what is being requested is a stop gap use since other kinds of tenants are not interested at this moment. if you need to find out why, there is an agent for commercial properties here tonight to can discuss it. as you know, the preservation element of your general plan encourages owners not to leave historic buildings like this vacant. the parking user today is a well-known parking operator as a tenant. that tenant has every incentive to keep this historic building from further deteriorating. this temporary use does address current problems that all of us hope will be temporary. for budget reasons, caltrans and muni have reduced services to this area. transportation people have told us that when giants fans want to go from montgomery station to the ballpark, they are often taking part to civic center or beyond to make sure the can get on the train, just standing room to get to the ballpark. that is not a very efficient use of bart. in five years, the area will have a new transportation hub in the trans bay t

primary use for us is disinfection. disinfection of drinking water and also the treatment of water. it is also used for odor control in our waste water collection system. so it will be this last piece that i will be focusing the discussion on today. this was question a lot in the media, so i will talk about that in one piece. i should note that it is one of the many methods that we used to combat odor in waste water. so where do we use this? on the charts year, about 50% of the sodium hypochlorite is used for disinfecting water. about 30% is used for disinfecting and treating waste water, and the remaining amount is used for over control -- odor control. it is not the only chemical we use. we also use peroxide and a ferriss solution -- ferous -- ferrous solution. they are cite specific. this is basically from where the odors are coming from. you want to know what this costs. that is what you are looking at there. while the total chemical addition has gone down, you will note that for sodium hypochlorite, it has actually increased, and in the next few slides, i will show you y. -- why.
